Pretty much says it all here in the title, I'm trying to figure out how I can overlock this cpu in safe ranges and gain better performance.

I mainly play WoW

GPU is: EVGA nVidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card Mfr P/N 512-P3-N879-TR

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Motherboard: MSI P7N SLI Platinum 750i based motherboard (I need to verify)





I don't know, and never have overclocked, this chip I'd guess is out of date, so I'd like to give it a shot, can anyone help guide me on this?

Is there a reason why you want to overclock? There is a lot of factors to consider when overclocking.

Trying to get the most out of my CPU, wanting more speed, for some reason I think that my CPU is the bottleneck of my gaming performance.

Before you do this, you should run FRAPS which shows the FPS and see the what the average FPS is when gaming.
